I'm Kirsten. (Pronounced "Kier" if you're wondering. 😉) I love a bold Cab, I'm obsessed with my Terrier mix Clive, and I live in my hometown of Los Angeles with my best friend (slash husband), Kenny.
I also know what it’s like to use your smarts as your superpower.
I’ve relied on my big brain for most of my achievements. I got my Master’s from Yale and worked in Stage Management, where I navigated complex theatrical productions (and personalities) for over ten years.
But I never felt totally in charge or intentional with my choices.
Throughout the success I built, I constantly worried I'd choose wrong and regret it later, I over-consulted other people, and when things did go well I chalked it up to being a fluke & went back to my anxiety. (Sound familiar?)
This uncertainty trickled down into my everyday decisions, to the point where even the smallest question, opportunity or idea would cue SNOWBALLING anxiety.
Your days are made up of decisions.
To feel clear & powerful in your everyday, you have to feel clear & powerful in your decisions.
I finally stopped living in angsty doubt and started making POWERFUL, AUTHENTIC, SELF-HONORING DECISIONS.
And I did it by learning exactly what I teach clients now:
- How to clarify exactly what you want
- How to constructively deal with stress, fear & unknowns
- And how to know you're making the right choice without "proof"
I still feel all the human doubt & fear - but I don't LIVE in it, to the point that it controls my choices. I have the tools and have built the habits to get back to Center & Self-Trust when my anxious brain wants to run amuck.
My mission is to help fellow hard-working, high-achieving smarty-pants STOP using their brains against themselves and TRUST their decisions.
